HOW can i get the coordinate data from an airfoil graphics?
i have a picture of one airfoil, and i wanna get the coordinate of the airfoil to modify the airfoil.
You can obtain all the geometric data from the name itself.
The airofoil name 63-121 was given. .The NACA 63121 profile describes an airfoil with design lift coefficient of 0.9 (0.15*6), the point of maximum camber located at 15% chord (5*3), reflex camber, and maximum thickness of 21% of chord length (21).
Other details are irrelevant

Use a pencil and a graph and work out the Integration and differentiation of the curve. This will give you precise data, or photocopy and import into drawing app with 1:1 scale, depending on software just import or trace
Feature -> Curves -> Curve Through XYZ Points
You can browse Curves: *sldcrv; *txt
Also you can entered manually.
Thank you everyone including Abhilash P,Lukasz Siwiec and Duncan. i have figure the problem out using the software named"plot digitizer". everyone can download it free. it can solve our problem. again thanks everyone and share the software with u.
